Speech of President Arroyo during the 11th Anniversary of the Philippine National Police
I call on our people and our nation, and all our institutions, to close ranks for the big push forward.
Together, we can weather the storm of the aftermath of September 11 and avert a global recession and achieve mutually profitable alliances.

Our local governments have likewise agreed to streamline and slash red tape in order to provide seamless efforts between national and local governments to be investor-friendly.
Indeed, this is the time to capitalize on the deepening convergence of Philippine and Canadian interests by strengthening our commercial relations. I’m sure that as we have been friends commercially, culturally for so long now, over a century, this time in the 21st century, together, we can weather the storm of global recession and achieve mutually profitable alliances.
And if the old relationship between Canada and the Philippines — our relationship that started more than a hundred years ago, in 1895 when Sunlife of Canada first put its investments in the Philippines — if this old relationship can be made to grow and flourish even more in this century — this century of uncertainty but also this century of great coalitions and great opportunities — together we can weather the storm of global recession and achieve mutually profitable alliances. Come to the Philippines, Canada, as we the Filipinos have also come to Canada.
And considering the global revenue projections for world outsourcing of I.T. services is showing significance shift towards the Asian region where American and European companies are increasingly contracting out their services to take advantage of lower cost, it will be indeed a wise move for Canadian companies to be a step ahead of your competition by choosing the new economy — Philippines — your winning e-services partner.
In the spirit of friendship then, I ask you all to join me in a toast to the government and people of Canada, to the enduring bonds between the Canadian and Filipino people, to his Excellency the Prime Minister and Madame Chretien.
